This republic of suffering : death and the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 3,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An illuminating study of the American struggle to comprehend the meaning and practicalities of death in the face of the unprecedented carnage of the Civil War. During the war, approximately 620,000 soldiers lost their lives. An equivalent proportion of today's population would be six million. This book explores the impact of this enormous death toll from every angle: material, political, intellectual, and spiritual. Historian Faust delineates the ways death changed not only individual lives but the life of the nation and its understanding of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. She describes how survivors mourned and how a deeply religious culture struggled to reconcile the slaughter with its belief in a benevolent God, and reconceived its understanding of life after death.--From publisher description
Mothers of invention : women of the slaveholding South in the American Civil War by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 3,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Confederate men marched off to battle, white women across the South confronted unaccustomed and unsought responsibilities: directing farms and plantations, providing for families, and supervising increasingly restive slaves. As southern women struggled "to do a man's business," they found themselves compelled to reconsider their most fundamental assumptions about their identities and about the larger meaning of womanhood. Drew Faust offers a compelling picture of the more than half-million women who belonged to the slaveholding families of the Confederacy during this period of acute crisis
The Ideology of slavery : proslavery thought in the antebellum South, 1830-1860 by Drew Gilpin Faust( )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2007 in English and held by 1,935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one volume, these essentially unabridged selections from the works of the proslavery apologists are now conveniently accessible to scholars and students of the antebellum South. The Ideology of Slavery includes excerpts by Thomas R. Dew, founder of a new phase of proslavery militancy; William Harper and James Henry Hammond, representatives of the proslavery mainstream; Thornton Stringfellow, the most prominent biblical defender of the peculiar institution; Henry Hughes and Josiah Nott, who brought would-be scientism to the argument; and George Fitzhugh, the most extreme of proslavery writers.The works in this collection portray the development, mature essence, and ultimate fragmentation of the proslavery argument during the era of its greatest importance in the American South. Drew Faust provides a short introduction to each selection, giving information about the author and an account of the origin and publication of the document itself. Faust's introduction to the anthology traces the early historical treatment of proslavery thought and examines the recent resurgence of interest in the ideology of the Old South as a crucial component of powerful relations within that society. She notes the intensification of the proslavery argument between 1830 and 1860, when southern proslavery thought became more systematic and self-conscious, taking on the characteristics of a formal ideology with its resulting social movement. From this intensification came the pragmatic tone and inductive mode that the editor sees as a characteristic of southern proslavery writings from the 1830s onward. The selections, introductory comments, and bibliography of secondary works on the proslavery argument will be of value to readers interested in the history of slavery and of nineteenth-centruy American thought
James Henry Hammond and the Old South : a design for mastery by Drew Gilpin Faust( )

13 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this finely drawn and gracefully written biography ... Faust has done much more than provide us with a badly needed full-length study of a key political figure and proslavery ideologue in antebellum South Carolina. Her success in placing the tragic dimensions of Hammond's life fully within the context of the larger tragedy which defines the internal history of the slave South elevates her biography to superb cultural and social history." -- Georgia Historical Quarterly

The creation of Confederate nationalism : ideology and identity in the Civil War South by Drew Gilpin Faust( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, historians have debated the meaning and significance of Confederate nationalism and the role it played in the outcome of the Civil War. Yet they have paid little attention to the actual development and content of this Confederate ideology. In The Creation of Confederate Nationalism, Drew Gilpin Faust argues that coming to a fuller understanding of southern thought during the Civil War period offers a valuable refraction of the essential assumptions on which the Old South and the Confederacy were built. She shows the benefits of exploring Confederate nationalism "as the South's commentary upon itself, as its effort to represent southern culture to the world at large, to history, and perhaps most revealingly, to its own people."--Back cover

8 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sally Mann : a thousand crossings by Sally Mann( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than 40 years, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work--portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies--is that it is all "bred of a place," the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions--about history, identity, race, and religion--that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections--Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains--and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann's artistic achievements."--
